Hello all. I'm starting this thread not only to document for myself but to ask questions to those who have already been down a road very similar to mine. Not new to the car scene, have had a couple of project cars thus far. Bought this VW Corrado completely stock minus exhaust and steering wheel. Turned into a shaved bay, stage 5, 4 year project while I was still in school. The reason It took so long was because I was a part of the FSAE team at Akron and that took up the majority of my time. Ended up selling the Corrado to a younger guy that wrecked it. SO... Here we are Graduated with nothing to do after work... I stumbled upon this Z in the fall of 2014, hearing about it through my cousin. Gentlemen was moving to SC and had left the car here with his brother. The car had sat in a garage for the majority of the past 30 years. All the work being done to it back in the 80's This included the SBC swap and Suede interior. The 240z was never a car I thought I would buy, I always thought they were awesome, but I couldn't see myself owning one. Well, that changed when I found this one. I quickly began working on it (my dad got really excited too) just to see if it would run. It did, after buying a few parts and cleaning a few things but I wasn't happy with it... I wanted more power, so I thought... do a cam, do some heads call it a day... Then things changed when a friend hooked me up with a set of Holset VGT turbos. So here I am today, joining you guys that know way more than me about the S chassis for help where I may seem like I am doing something wrong. I have already made a few friends at the StanceNation Texas meet, have followed many extremely awesome builds, and have over the past year gathered ideas for my car. Look forward to building this car, Thanks ahead of time for the help!
Well the time has come to swap my stock T3 with the holset i had kicking around I've re-drilled the mounting holes on the turbo, broke a few drill bits but surprised how easy it was to drill Ive read that some guys needed to put a spacer to clear the manifold.. looks like mine is fine. its tight but it clears fabricating the waste gate actuator from the T3 to fit on the holset...then i ran out of steam for the day when i couldnt find a part i just had hehe Matt
